Bruce Still Obituary

In loving Memory of Bruce Linden Still 7/17/1930 to 7/28/2019
Bruce Linden Still, 89, formerly of Bement, Illinois and Cincinnati, Ohio, died July 28, 2019, at Bowling Green Manor, OH. with
his loving wife of 67 years, and family at his side. He was born July 17, 1930, in Decatur, Illinois to Robert Scott and Ola (Dooley)
Still.
He lived all his elementary through high school years in Bement, Illinois (High School Class of 1948), and continued his college
education at the University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana, graduating in 1952 with a degree in Radio Journalism.
Bruce held various positions within the radio industry including Announcer, Operations Manager, Sports Play-by-play, News
Anchor, Production Manager, Program Director, and Consulting for over 50 years at the following top 40 AM and News/Talk
stations:
WCVS of Springfield, ILL., WIRL of Peoria, ILL., KQV of Pittsburg, PA., WIL of St. Louis, MO., WGR of Buffalo, NY.,
WXYZ of Detroit, MI. and WCKY of Cincinnati, OH.
Bruce served as Supply Sergeant in the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army during the Korean War from 1952 to
1954.
.
Bruce was an avid reader, with a hobby in creative writing and a great storyteller. Bruce’s children fondly remember him as the
fun-loving dad who would begin each wildly imaginative adventure by bestowing silly nicknames to his four children, which
captivatedly enthralled them from beginning to end; entertaining them by the hours as he would weave them along his make-
believe tales.
Bruce lived daily by his belief: “To truly be rich equates to happiness by connecting in love of faith and service to family, friends
and community - keeping mindful of the needs of others.”
Bruce cherished family and community; joyfully sharing his time and talents for over 50 years in the Anderson Township area of
Cincinnati. Times of his service that shaped his family’s lives of faith included:
Forest Hills/Anderson School PTA and School Board; Little League basketball referee and Kiwanis League; American Heart
Association and the annual Mini Heart Marathon; Governor’s Convention and Beech Acres Orphanage events; Cincinnati
Symphony Men’s Committee; United Appeal; Negro College Fund; Salvation Army; Police Media Relations Committee; NAACP;
and a Steward (Cowboy Minister) to Anderson Hills Methodist Church: KRP, Missions, Usher, Sunday school and Bible Study.
Bruce was preceded in death by his parents, Robert Scott, and Ola (Dooley) Still; parents-in-law, Joseph Francis, and Ella (Hill)
McCabe; brother, Robert Lyle Still; sister-in-law, Mary E. Still; nephew, Dr. Robert Lyle Still; sister, Iva Daraleen Wilms; brother-
in-law Ron Wilms; brother-in-law, Charles Lewis McCabe, and infant son, John Linden Still.

(Linda) Still; his 3 sons “Mike the Fright”- David Bruce (Joanie) Still, “Pat the Brat”- Joseph Patrick Still (Detra Durban Fullmer),
